Kiehl's are a relatively new addition to my skincare routine but having gotten on so well with their Ultra Facial Cream (review here) I was keen to try a few more products. They've recently launched two new face masques, both brightly coloured and packed with active ingredients. There's a turmeric & cranberry seed masque to energize and add radiance, and a cilantro and orange masque to help defend against pollutants:
In winter I often struggle with dull skin so was really pleased to see an immediate effect after using the new Kiehl's turmeric and cranberry seed energizing radiance masque. It tingles slightly on application which soon disappears as it dries and you're left with a rather attractive mustard yellow face (definitely not one to answer the front door with)! It also tightens on the skin so you can really feel it working and afterwards the crushed cranberry seeds gently exfoliate as you wash away, getting rid of any dead skin cells and helping to add even more of a glow.
Kiehl's cilantro and orange extract pollutant defending masque is rather innovative and exciting. Instead of a weekly treatment like most masques, this is designed to be used several times a week. I've been using this in place of a night cream, applying generously all over, letting it sink in for about 10mins then tissueing off any excess and leaving it to work it's magic overnight. Like anti-aging skincare this is more of a long term preventative option but rather scarily recent research has shown that pollution can be almost as damaging as the sun so it's good to know that there are protective products out there, especially as London has some of the highest levels in the world!
Have you tried either of these two masques? What are your favourite Kiehl's skincare products?
